Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Wow, what if you woke up one morning and discovered that you can fly. Sophy does, but only her Great-Aunt Pearl pays any attention. It seems she too can fly. They have a great time together, and all of their adventures, whether peeking into a second story window, eating ice cream among the clouds, or coming face to face with a giraffe are beautifully illustrated in full-page, framed, colored-pencil art.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Sophy and Auntie Pearl are delighted that they can fly, amazed that no one seems to notice, and find great pleasure in an aerial adventure that will encourage young children to let their own imaginations take flight. This very simple story has much to recommend it. It's a wonderful comment on intergenerational relationships and on those who fail to see miracles right before their eyes. An angel is hidden inside each of Titherington's realistic, emotion-filled drawings for readers to discover.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2When Sophy wakes up one morning and joyfully discovers she can fly, only one adult, Great-Aunt Pearl, can appreciate the phenomenon. Children and animals gaze up at the child in awe, but other adults simply don't or won't notice. Auntie Pearl, who can fly also, has received the same discouraging reaction. She and Sophy have a marvelous airborne excursion, peering in second-story shop windows, meeting a giraffe face to face, and enjoying ice cream among the clouds. But ``when they got home, no one noticed they'd been gone.'' The simple, charming text, printed with large clarity in an elegant typeface, is formally arranged opposite full-page, framed colored-pencil illustrations. Seen from various perspectives, the expertly rendered, realistic indoor and outdoor scenes of everyday life are made magical with floods of light and the exuberance of the pair as they prance gleefully across the sky. Too bad that lovely flights of fancy seem to be limited to the young and old, who are so much less immersed in mundane matters. Children will relish this message.Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
Hazel Rochman
With her usual simple text and soft-textured colored-pencil illustrations, Titherington tells a story of imagination and friendship. Sophy discovers she can fly. Her mother and father aren't interested, but Great-aunt Pearl next door says she can fly, too. Together, the small child and the old lady take off downtown, chat eye-to-eye with a giraffe at the zoo, and enjoy an ice-cream cone in the clouds. The youngest kids in the neighborhood see them fly, but no one else seems to notice, even when they return home. This picture book has the same matter-of-fact view of wildness in daily life as Anthony Browne's domestic fantasies--but without the scariness. Titherington's gentle, realistic art makes the ordinary so amazing that we laugh at the playful perspectives and fly with the story.
